    I’ve got to say Eddie…. you sure know how to make racing interesting. :) Good call on the rear geometry change. One more data point for MidOhio. You are always good for at least a second faster on race pace over qualifying. It was so cool to see you closing on Dave Gray.

    great team effort! you guys ran into some pretty big bumps in the road and still made it through the weekend, where most other people would have packed it in and went home.

    Thanks guys. I’m thinking now that maybe we ran too soft a tire and/or too soft of springs in the front (similar to what you had mentioned Doug) ..

    Something inside me just couldn’t let our AMA debut end on Friday with a broken motor. THIS CANNOT BE THE END, THERE MUST BE A SOLUTION.

    After our round one setback, the climb to Mount MidOhio seemed even more difficult. Thanks to all our family, friends and the team for the support. Especially to Jeff Agnes for the “equipment.”

    It’s definitely more fun pulling out and putting in motors at the track than in the garage, assuming there’s no rush.

    Just hitting that start button and hearing it fire up is a thrill.

    Given the motor swapping and the hoopla with FX qualifying .. I still can’t believe we did all that in the short amount of time we did .. Phew ..

    Way to go man. Your name is sandwiched on the list with Rog Hayden and B. Boz.

    Keep it up! Great team victory.

    I actually got a good lap in behind Roger during the morning practice session. I think he was on his outlap, but it was good to run behind him and see his lines and such. Definitely a lot to be learned by participating at AMA events ..

    You cannot be tough on yourself, wanting to be up with the front runners when you’ve reached a level of success that you have with GLRRA and WERA over past years. But you must be patient and accepting of the unexpected when thinking of that goal. Looking at everything now as a week has passed, you (WKR) did more then we could have hoped for and come next year, or perhaps next AMA round, it only looks better!

    Great job bro! Nice work to the crew, great job to Gina for hydration and nutrition, Garry for always having the calming words that Eddie needs to hear, Doug for being Joe’s #2 and Jeff for the sweet pics.
